Cosmetologists Chicago is ‘Intrigued’


Beautiful pastel created during Club Intrigue: Summer Session

CC Voices caught up with Cosmetologists Chicago Secretary Karen Gordon, owner of J.Gordon Designs, in Chicago about her exciting travels this week!  Karen, along with Paul Dykstra, CEO of CC and America’s Beauty Show,  attended the Club Intrigue Summer Session in Atlanta earlier this week.

Check out Karen’s review and photos of the event!

“Paul Dykstra and I just returned from Atlanta where we attended a totally cool event, the Club Intrigue Summer Session. Founded by salon owner Jeff South, Club Intrigue has a unique goal: to unite salon communities through education, fashion and fun….very much like Cosmetologists Chicago’s own mission! More than 350 salon pros from more than 65 salons had the opportunity to mingle at the Van Michael Salon in Midtown Atlanta, while stylists from 22 salons put their best work forward. The greatest aspect of Club Intrigue is there’s NO competition and NO attitude. It’s really just a ‘hair jam’.

“I ran into a few old friends, like Daniel Holtzberger, award winning stylist and Creative Director of Van Michael Salons. Daniel was finessing a very cool undercut bob. Stylists from other salons were working on pastel colored hair and etching short hair.

“Exciting for me…I got to connect in person with one of my Facebook friends, Brent Hardgrave. When I ran into him, he had just put extensions on his fine-haired model. Needless to say, she was over-the-moon for them. Brent also gave me signed copy of his new book on hair loss. Love you Brent!

“The evening ended with a presentation of all of the models. For those who couldn’t attend, they can catch the event online.

“Looking back I just want to say, Club Intrigue and Atlanta…YOU ROCK!!!”

Thanks, Karen!

Paul added that he had a fantastic time in Atlanta! “We were able to experience the incredible energy of Club Intrigue without the stress of a competition or show. It was a wonderful environment with great hospitality!”

All Club Intrigue events are available for live-stream for individuals who cannot make the event. Be sure to check them out!

    Super cool! Lets bring Club Intrigue to Chicago!

    • Paul Dykstra says:

      We all agree Tony. Karen and I will work with Jeff South during these next few weeks to determine how and where best to implement the program here. With Jeff’s experience and CC’s history in this marketplace, we can send it over the top! More to come . . .
